The Lenoir-Rhyne University Men's and Women's Track and Field Teams opened the outdoor season with several strong performances at the 2013 L-R PowerSox Invitational Saturday at the Irwin Belk Track as part of the Moretz Sports - Athletic Complex.
On the women's side, L-R senior Elizabeth Chaffee (Winston-Salem, N.C.) finished first in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 13:02.02.
Meanwhile, Lenoir-Rhyne freshman Tarryn Cornejo (Deland, Fla.) won the women's pole vault (8༼") and senior Samantha Levine (Wayne, N.J.) placed first in the women's javelin throw with a toss of 109༽". Levine also set a new program record in the women's hammer throw (105ཆ").
L-R freshman Vertrice Wilson (Carrollton, Ga.) established a new school record in the women's 100-meter hurdles (15.76), good for second place overall.
For the Lenoir-Rhyne men's squad, senior Justin McCombs (Catawba, N.C.) won the 200-meter dash (22.10) and finished second in the 400-meter dash (49.22).
Sophomore Jarrod Spears (Bunnlevel, N.C.) placed second in the men's 100-meter dash with a time of 10.92 seconds while McCombs and Spears were the third and fourth legs, respectively, of the men's 400-meter relay team (42.31) which finished first.
Lenoir-Rhyne redshirt freshman Kevin Baxter (Columbia, S.C.) won the men's 110-meter hurdles with a school-record 14.66, a time good enough to qualify as a provisional to the D-II national outdoor finals. The former school record had stood for 37 years.
